This was such an awesome project to work on. Gary Rydstrom wrote and directed this fun short about the mishaps of a young Alien trainee getting his abduction lesson from the Instructor, much the same way we humans go for a driving test. Gary is one of the most humble, calm and generous people to work for, who also happens to have won a gazillion Oscars as a Sound Designer. You've heard his work on such diverse films as Up, Saving Private Ryan, and Titanic. He always wanted to be involved in the early stages of film production, and working as a director at Pixar afforded him that opportunity. It was another one of the many privileged times I had at Pixar. Thank you Gary!
